Wild Women Soaps: Arizona Soap Collection
The Arizona soap collection ($5-$5.50 per bar or $28 for a set of six) from Wild Women Soaps captures the essence of the desert with indigenous ingredients. Their Grand Canyon soap bar mixes jojoba oil and clays to create a four-layered sudsy masterpiece reminiscent of the canyon’s walls, while the “Native Scrub” uses yucca root and sweetgrass to build a perfumey lather. The Wild Women from Mesa even concocted a soap bar celebrating the Southwest’s famous margarita, complete with lime oils, exfoliating salt crystals and a real shot of tequila.
